It isn’t by tying it around your head alone, you know.
There are other super stylish ways to rock a scarf and make a style statement.
I can bet you haven’t tried all of them yet.
Wanna prove me wrong?
Hold on a second.
Let’s get down to business first by learning (or reminding ourselves) how to wear a scarf.
What is a Scarf?
A scarf is a piece of clothing worn around the neck, head, or any part of the body.
Some wear it for religious purposes. Also, some wear it for warmth. Some wear it to protect themselves from the sun. While others wear it for the sake of fashion, cleanliness, or to show solidarity for a sports club.
Scarves are usually made with fabrics such as silk, wool, linen, cotton, etc. And ever since they became a fashion staple, luxury fashion brands like Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Fendi, Prada, etc., never fail to dole out printed scarves.
History of Scarves
Scarves have existed for a long time. History has it that during the reign of the Chinese Emperor Cheng, cloth scarves were used to identify the rank of Chinese warriors.
In ancient Rome, people wore scarves to stay clean. They called it focale which meant sweat cloth.
It was during the 19th century that scarves became a fashion accessory for both genders. And in the 20th century, it became a wardrobe staple.
How to Wear a Scarf
As said earlier, there are many ways to rock a scarf.
But if I keep telling you, you won’t believe me.
How about I show you instead?
Let’s dive in.
1. Tie it around your head
This is the most common way to rock a scarf.
You can do this when you’re having a bad hair day or when you want to fulfill religious demands.
You just have to know how to tie the scarf in ways that boost your style and beautify your head.
2. Hang/Wrap it around your neck
You can as well rock your scarf like a muffler or a tie to replace a necklace.
Simply hang or wrap it around your neck or twist and turn to simulate a tie.
3. Wear it like a belt
Who said scarves are for the head and neck alone?
Well, that person is wrong because your scarf also serves as a belt.
So, for the days when a belt isn’t close, take advantage of it and make a fashion statement by running your scarf through your belt loops.
You’ll wind up adorning your waist once you do so.
4. Wear it as a Top
Fashionistas do this. Why haven’t you?
You can maneuver your scarf around your torso to create any style of top.

5. Tie it Around Your ankles or Wrist
Can you save your wristwatch and anklets for another day?
Use a scarf instead.
Just twist or fold it a bit and wrap it to your wrist or ankle.
A small scarf or bandana will achieve this for you.
6. Make it a Bag Accessory
A little detail to make your bags stand out, don’t you think?
And to prove this, some handbags come with scarves.
So, will you try it out already?
It had better be a yes!
